“Me” Time




As a busy mother with a full time job and going to school full time it is hard to find time for me. I give all my time to everyone else, especially my children and never take time for myself.

You cant help others if you don’t help yourself

So when you become a paramedic the first thing they teach you is scene safety. We are no good to anyone if we get injured.  Its easy to get wrapped up in the never ending to do list. It never seems like the right time, and you generally feel guilty. (or at least I do) However, GO! you have to take care of yourself to keep your sanity.

Risks of not giving yourself breaks

When you fail to give yourself breaks; you are more susceptible to multiple things. Such as depression, burnout, headaches, and backaches. These are just a few complications. I have personally experienced burnout and it is very hard to recover from. I am extremely irritable and experience many physical symptoms. It is hard to take a step back and know when to take a break. 

I’m guilty of neglecting myself, and even though I usually plan my days out, somehow my “mommy time” always got lost in the shuffle of my day.  It is extremely important to spend time with your children. However, if you do not give yourself alone time you can not be the best you can be.

Hello world!

Welcome to my blog!!! I am Briana and I started this blog so to tell people about some of the craziness in my life. Give all my fellow mamma’s, army wife’s and ems gals a place to blow of some steam and encouragement for the days when everything feels impossible. My life is pretty crazy. My husband completely switched careers and joined the army last year he is 26. So we are very new to army life thing. However, before he joined the army we both worked on an ambulance. I am a paramedic which is a crazy life all in it self. I also am going to school full time to finish my pre-requisites to go to PA school.

So there is a little bit about my crazy life! Why don’t you tell me about yours.
